Brains At Risk Program

brainsatriskAbout the Brains At Risk Victim Impact Panel Brains At Risk is an awareness and prevention program that was developed over twenty-five years ago by the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA). Brains at Risk links dangerous driving behaviors to the devastating effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The curriculum combines video, graphics and group discussions to demonstrate the importance of choices made behind the wheel.  The most impactful part of Brains At Risk is when the attendees get to hear the personal stories of those whose lives have been permanently affected by an impaired or reckless driver or underage drinking.
